I noticed on my wi-fi connection that there is a triangle with excalamation mark.  My wi-fi is working fine.  I can browse the Internet fine.  Why would this be showing up?

That same wifi icon appearance but with internet connection have also bug me previously. I am not sure what solved the problem but maybe clearing the home network profile and manually connecting again or reinstalling the driver may help.

Run Ipconfig /all in the command prompt with administrator privileges see if there are any network connections that are assigned a different IP then your wireless. You could have a "lingering" network connection that is not connected to anything but still has an invaild IP address. This can be caused by statically asigning an IP then creating a new network connection or changing the Name of the Network connection, or Using advanced settings in the IPv4 you can specify multiple dns servers which can confuse windows. Iif you have IPV4 and IPV6 turned on (If your using Windows 7 with the homegroup you need IPV6 on) make sure both have a valid connection. Lastly if you have VM software or VPN connections installed make sure the network connection is not enabled when the software is not being used. The should show Disabled when the VPN client is not conneted or Virtual Box/Windows Virtual PC is not using the connection.

You can use ping and ipconifg tools to resolve the issue.

Could you be more specific please? If he has access to the internet, and is able to load webpages there is no connectivity issues with the wireless.

If there was an IP conflict with another machine, you would not be able to browse the Internet. This has happened to be me before when I had my laptop running and on-resume for a week. I had to restart the machine to fix the issue because in my case, the icon would just show a crossed out mark. Maybe you should try and restart it rather than uninstalling and re-installing your entire network.
